England Captain Eoin Morgan Opens up on Bangladesh Security Fears

Friday, 09 September 2016 - 7:28


Eoin Morgan says two previous security scares in the sub-continent made him wary of ever again jeopardising his personal safety, as he outlined why he remains deeply concerned about touring Bangladesh.

England's limited-overs captain has yet to commit to a tour whose future was called into question after an attack on a Dhaka cafe in July saw 20 hostages killed, although team-mates Moeen Ali and Chris Jordan have both said they will go if selected.

The England and Wales Cricket Board consequently sent an inspection team to Bangladesh led by long-serving security Chief Reg Dickason.

After he reported back, the board confirmed that the tour, which includes three one-day internationals and two Test match fixtures in October-November, would go ahead.
